Just saw 'World At War' and the most amazing part of that film was in the beginning, where we got to see a Nazi Party Rally happening in NYC at Madison Square Garden in February 20, 1939. Would like to see more of this footage, just because it's just so bizarre that this happened. Anyone know of any way to see this besides going to a neo-nazi group? lol

You might want to look into the "German-American Bund", very likely the Nazi group that was doing it. There were some chapters around here (NJ) and they managed to make a nuisance of themselves and not much else.

Thanx

I've done some research in the midwest and discovered that the Bund was active throughout that part of our country. This fact serves as the background for my second novel: The Twins, and will continue to be background for my third, now in process. I'm very interested in discussing this topic with anyone.

That same clip (only in longer versions) is on two other films that are not in the archive even though both are public domain. The first one is "The Last Days Of World War II" and the other film (which is feature length) is called "The Fatal Attraction Of Adolph Hitler" I have both of these but they were taken off of a cable broadcast and OF COURSE have that annoying STATION LOGO that pops up every now and then in the bottom right hand corner. Rick probably has these two films and perhaps we can get him to put them out here. BTW, I saw that WW-II Documentary about a month ago, and I agree that it is really a great documentary. Some of the footage isn't something you'd see on the History Channel because it was rather graphic.
